Description

So beautiful
One of a kind paper mache* Angel sculpture. She is about 20 inches(50cm) tall & with a gently poseable wingspan of 12 inches(30cm). Her bottom half is over a cone so she can be displayed standing and/or used as a christmas tree topper.

Sculpted, sanded, gessoed, then finished in a variety of papers & sealed with a polyurethane spray - my work is created to last.Every piece is original, my design, & never to be duplicated.


The Process
Many hours & quite a bit of work goes into every sculpture.
I create each piece over a strong armature I construct using wire & found objects. I make my own clay from 100% post consumer paper.
I shred junk paper (office paper, junk mail, newspaper, etc) soak it & mix it with paste & glue to make a pulp then add calcium carbonate for strength & to buffer any acid in the paper. Each piece is sculpted in layers so that it dries completely & when finished is sanded, gessoed, painted, covered in decorative or handmade papers & then sealed. The work I sell on etsy is not constructed for outdoor display (especially in wet climates) but with normal use will last a lifetime*. Clean with a soft cloth or duster.

*or several lifetimes - quick fact - there is paper mache still in existence from China's Han dynasty (202 B.C.-220 A.D.)

I love my new print! And the artist gave me a bonus print of washerwoman 'front view.' I placed these on opposing walls with a mirror in between to create a 'trick of the eye' coming and going instant views. They look amazing. Thank you Rachel!

This is my third piece by this artist. I love the alternate approach to "common" themed objects (star on Xmas tree). This woman is very talented and I can't wait to see what else she produces in the future.
